The public is invited to meet Metro artist Fran Siegel for a series of morning activities in mid-Wilshire on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. Participants will gain a deeper appreciation for the research and inspiration that goes into Siegel’s artistic process, learn more about the neighborhood and its assets and get a behind-the-scenes look into Siegel’s site specific artwork for the concourse of the future Wilshire/La Brea Station.
Begin with an observation and orientation of sunlight and architecture outside the Korean Cultural Center at 9 a.m. sharp. This will be followed by a walking tour along Wilshire Boulevard with L.A. historian J. Eric Lynxwiler, then a curator talk at the Korean Cultural Center on ancient methods of marking time and history. Afterwards, enjoy a presentation of Fran Siegel’s project for Metro. The event wraps with a noontime sun observation.
Siegel is one of eight artists selected to create site-specific, integrated artworks for section one of the Westside Purple Line Extension Project.
